I GAMBLED $600 on this Backhoe sight UNSEEN?? Was it WORTH it?!? ~ Broke Down Backhoe ~ Part 1

Salvage Workshop

This old backhoe popped up on the line for sale recently! They were asking $600, and immediately I told them... "I'LL TAKE IT!"

It's now time to go check it out and see what I bought!!

Do you think my gamble will pay off or did I buy a piece of junk that really SHOULD head off to the scrapyard?

Let's find out!

Please enjoy! I know I did!
